The Philadelphia Phillies are reportedly on the verge of acquiring Astros closer Wilton Lopez, who had a 2.17 ERA in 64 games last season, according to a report by CSNPhilly.com.

Lopez, 29, had a 6-3 record with 10 saves for Houston in 2012. He took over as the team's closer when Brett Myers was traded to the Chicago White Sox.

The Phillies and Astros have a lengthy history of trades in recent years, with Houston sending - among others - Brad Lidge, Roy Oswalt, and Hunter Pence to Philadelphia.

It is not immediately clear who the Astros would be getting if the trade is completed.
